Part of this complete breakfast!

That’s right! We’re breakfast! We’ve had this idea for a while now for me to be an egg, but up until the last couple of weeks we weren’t sure my pregnant belly was going to be big enough to poke through to make it obvious what I was supposed to be. The costumes were a breeze to make and entirely no-sew. I purchased a roll of foam in the craft department at Walmart and cut the egg and toast freehand. The hole for the “yolk” (aka. the bump) was traced with a 9″ cake round. Brad used spray paint (very easy) to color Ezra’s toast. I purchased 1/2 yard of fabric in each color for Brad’s bacon costume. I then cut them freehand and glued them together with fabric glue. Easy peasy! The costumes were a big hit!

We like family themes for costumes. We’re going to keep trying to do it as long as our kids have no choice in the matter let us. For Ezra’s first Halloween I sewed us matching Oktoberfest costumes. But since we don’t drink we called them German… or Dutch… we weren’t sure what nationality we were, but we were cute!

Last year we decided to dress up at the very (and I mean VERY) last minute. So we glued styrofoam cups to cardboard boxes, spray painted each a different color, and went as legos! The paint had hardly dried by the time we left for the party so we were totally high of the fumes. But we had fun!

    I thought about those Lego costumes the other day! One of my Facebook friends dressed up as a Lego person for Halloween. I’m not sure exactly how she made her costume but it was super cute.

    I’m sure her costume was put together better than our last minute costumes! By the way, I loved your mermaid costume! It turned out way cute!

    You are so creative. Enjoy the family themed costumes while they last. Last year we somehow pulled off “cowgirls and indians”, but this year everyone had their own ideas, which is really great. What better time than Halloween to be free thinking and dress up as whatever you want. The breakfast is hilarious! And I like my eggs over EASY too.

    Yeah, I hope it lasts for a while. Ezra loved his toast costume 🙂 Your “cowgirls and indians” theme was great last year. The kids were all really cute this year too though!
